Move it on over, indeed.

By the way, did you hear about the Dallas Cowboys offense being spooked by an unfamiliar white powdery substance on the field during practice? Authorities discovered that it was an exotic drug called "the end zone", and owner Jerry Jones has sworn that no player will be exposed to it so long as he's general manager of the team.

Then there was that time when a fan snuck a firecracker into Jerry's new playpen -- he lit it off and the visitors thought it was the signal for the end of the half and ran off the field. After three plays the 'Boys scored.

Could be worse, George. There's word out this way that Jones may be selling the Cowboys to an unnamed Philippine group. They'll be renamed "the Manila Folders".

Dallas, TX (AP) - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Dallas County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree reasonably possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.
Needing two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Dallas Cowboys professional football team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

Mojo, congratulations. That one left me with milk shooting out my nose. It's just a shame that I was drinking Dr. Pepper at the time.

Any winners from last night, other than all of us Chicago Bear fans? Their schedule from here on out is pretty rough, and if they can make it to the playoffs healthy, they could fare a lot better than I thought at the beginning of the season.
